Hi all.

 

Had a debt letter from Wescot today claiming £931.00 On behalf of Anglian Water.

 

The bill had both my name and ex wifes name on it. I

 

have no idea why they are contacting me so I called them.

 

Apparently the bill is for an address that my ex lives at and dates back to 2005.

 

He also mentioned something about closure in 2008?

 

My ex still lives at this address so why the hell are they contacting me!

 

I was with my ex in 2005 and I can only asume that it is from a previous property but she dealt with all the bills.

 

What can i do about this?

 

please help

 

Chris

nothing ignore them.

 

they are are not BAILIFFS

 

and have no such LEGAL POWERS

 

if AW wanted the money they'd have gone to court years ago.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

I have a nice new letter from Wescot regarding this bill and the conclusion to their investigation. It states this:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

We refer to your recent communication. Having contacted our client they have advised both parties are liable for the address: ---------.

 

You would need to provide supporting details to show you are not liable for the billing period from the 01.02.2003 to the 28.06.2008.

 

To allow you to comply with our clients request we have placed your account on hold for 30 days. Please keep us updated with the situation as your account may be returned to the collection process after the hold period expires.

 

Yours Faithfully

 

Ms H Thundercliffe

 

What is the best course of action to take now? please help

 

Chris

I am concerned that Wescot will call me at work. They have my work number and have called before.

 

As far as their dates go. I did live at that address during those dates. However, my ex wife dealt with all the bills. I assumed she was paying them. Clearly not! Can I really just ignore them? they will pass this onto solicitors and take me to court?

I just want to say thanks dx. You have been a real help. Just one more question.

 

I know you said ignore them. But could I just send an harassment letter and basically say ' Im not paying you any money and do not want to hear from you again. You are more than welcome to take me to court'

 

What do you think?

Hi

 

Have received a threatogram from wescot today

 

stating that if i do not pay in full by the 25th May they will send a door step collector or take me to court.

 

This is funny, because in their previous letter they dated 15/04/13 they said Anglian Water had requested they put my account on hold for 30 days

and collections may commence again after the 30 days.

 

Well they have clearly started early and ignored Anglian Waters request!

Sent Wescot a formal complaint and harrassment letter. Their reply "We have closed this account and will remove your details from our files. We will no longer pursue this debt' :)

Why wont these people give up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I managed to get Wescot off of my back with this stupid Anglian Water debt they alleged I owe.

 

They stated due to the information I had provided Wescot will take no further action and have closed the account.

 

However, I've jus got back home after a four day business trip and, as if it were magic a new letter from a company called LCS stating,

I owe Anglian Water money and they are taking over the investigation.

Its actually quite annoying now.

 

Ive not even heard of this outfit before

 

can anyone shed any light on these people?

 

Also do they ever give up or just pass the debt onto other half wits once they realise they have no chance in getting the money?

 

Thanks

yep its called a phishing list.

 

they just sell it on

many low life dca's because its a water debt

and people 'think' water is like the other utils...a priority debt

[which it is NOT]

 

thy try their luck too.

 

don't forget

when the debts are sold on a list, 'bad news' will not be shown

else the new buyer will not 'pay for the buying of the debt.

 

its p'haps better to ignore

rather than enter into letter tennis

Hi all.

 

Its all been quiet on the DCA front unti i received a letter from LCS on behalf if Anglian Water.

 

Wescot were originally dealing with this one but gave up after i challenged it.

 

Clearly they have just passed it to LCS and these lot are relentless.

 

Threatograms, Calls and text messgaes.

 

I have ignored them all and havent even acknowledged them.

 

This aleged water debt is from 2004 to 2008 so its not quite statute barred.

 

With regard to this can I demand that:

1) They must prove I lived at the alleged address

2) Provide me with a signed contract or any other evidence that proves I requested the supply.

 

Any help appreciated :)

Hi

 

Ive spoken to my ex wife about this debt. (not a nice experience)

 

Apparently she was paying this debt up until March 2009.

Then just stopped.

 

its taken them 4 years then started to chase me.

 

The original threatogram had both mine and my ex's name on it.

 

Now all subseqent letters just have my name.

 

I have ignored all dca letters and not acknowledged the debt.

 

My question is this.

 

If she was paying the debt that is a clear acknowledgement?

 

Can they now just chase me?

 

Secondly,

will Anglian Water have to provide me with a signed contract to prove I am liable?

 

lastly i believe my ex set up the account over the phone.

 

So they have no verbal or written contract from me.

 

Only a name on a bill.

Hi

 

Another letter from LCS goons today.

 

This time there giving me 72 hours notice?

 

They're saying If I dont contact them they will refer the case back to Anglian Water and recommend court action.

Or i can take advantage of a 20% discount.

 

This offer is for ten days only?

 

hmmmm thats longer than 72 hours.

 

If they do refer back to Anglian Water, would A W actually take court action after 5 years?
